    Let’s see who can guess what the Braves will do. I’ll guess the obvious and say Will Smith

    Cost would be big, and he comes with character concerns and PR baggage. I’d rather stay away unless it’s an absolute steal.

    In a shocking turn of events HH is appointed assistant to AA and FF is finally traded.

    Here is their Will Smith breakdown.

    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/...ill-smith.html

    Most interesting part was recap of what comparable relievers fetched last season.



    (NEVER MIND- Braves international pool is zero per BA) Also referenced international bonus pool money playing role in at least one trade. I think the Braves still have their pool dollars, which might come into to play with a team like San Francisco, who you would think would be exploring as many options as possible in bringing in young talent this offseason. (NEVER MIND)

    Pretty sure we’ve hit our allowed spending for this current signing period and we aren’t allowed to trade signing pool money for the upcoming year that starts July 2.

    Does the team have zero, or are they simply not allowed to spend it (but otherwise could trade it)? I remember there being some confusion on that point.

    Edit: Just saw Southcack’s BA link. If true, that’s too bad—trading pool money they can’t use would’ve been a fun workaround.

    zero...teams can sign players at very low bonus levels that don't count against the pool (which for the Braves is zero)

    We should just offer every 16 year old with a pulse 10k.

    Working link to the Top 50 trade candidates: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/...-deadline.html

    From the "Pen Targets" thread:

    Looking at the recent returns for the best rental BP arm on the market reveals the cost to be a poo-poo platter of 2-3 prospects plus something else of value and indicates the Braves have the ammo required to get Will Smith. The sheer depth of the Braves system suggests they should be able to come off 3 marginal guys and not even feel it as a loss.

    Even if the Braves don't make the top offer for Smith, they should be able to deal from the low end depth of the system to get 1-2 other guys on the list.
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/25/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18

    Every sixteen-year-old from Venezuela or Curaçao who’s even tenuously related to Acuña or Albies, at the very least.

    I left Andruw off because his kid goes to high-school in Suwannee, GA; I’m hoping he’s a Braves draft target in 2022.
